The new and famous UV Tattoos are also known as “Black Light Tattoos” which are created using ultraviolet-reactive ink, and while UV tattoos are quasi-invisible in plain daylight, they shine under an ultraviolet black-light bulb.
UV ink is thinner and harder to work with. This is why it is important to make sure the tattoo artist, and shop you are going to, are reputable and have worked with black light tattoos before.
Important: BLACK LIGHT TATTOOS DON’T GLOW-IN-THE-DARK IN THE SAME WAY YOUR STAR STICKERS IN YOUR CHILDHOOD BEDROOM GLOW.
UV tattoos have their art to be tattooed so it is necessary that you advise especially well. These when they are healed they also have a kind of pastel and watered-down look, so you can see the phosphorus reflect through it. So if you want your tattoo to look good even outside its special light, make sure that the design that requires UV ink is in thick areas or that they are close to dark lines to get a perfect contrast. It’s like coordinating the two versions of “outfit” that tattoo could have.
The duration that these may have on your body is the same as the probabilities you have when becoming a regular one. It will be a matter of genetics to receive the ink very well or spoil it soon. But according to the recommendations made by your tattoo artist, you will know if you should touch up often or not. Any effort would be worthwhile for the maintenance of these cool UV tattoos.
